Janet West of Ireland

Janet has worked as a tour guide in the Burren region in the west of Ireland since April 2002, spending every Summer guiding people around this amazing protected landscape.

She is a long standing member of the Burren Ecotourism Network, recently awarded best community tourism project by Lonely Planet's Best In Travel Awards 2021.

Loved the tour. Great guide. Made it very interesting and memorable. Cycled past the house on a bike tour a few years ago in the rain 😂☔
